20,000 jobs to be created by Cassidian 

Cassidian has opened the first ever defence oriented engineering college in Bengaluru. Cassidian is the defence and security division of the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company (EADS). It is expected that it would create 20,000 jobs for engineers in India in the years to come.  

EADS has its headquarters in Les Mureaux near Paris.

At present there are 60 employees which would be around 200 by 2012. This was announced by Dr Stefan Zoller during the inauguration of the centre in Begaluru.
If EADS finalizes the deal worth $11 billion with Indian Air Force, around 20,000 jobs would be there in the Indian market.  

He said that a rapid growth is seen in India and so they have decided to open this centre here. He said, “India is one of the leading nations in electronics; we have to get close to the resources to invest in the market, create capabilities and produce. It’s logical and a must”.

Cassidian is a global leader in providing civil and military solutions. Now it is looking forward towards establishing a joint venture with Larsen & Turbo (L&T) with respect to defence electronics. 

The centre aims to have a vast pool of qualified and expert engineers by capitalising on leading edge technologies, systems and products of Cassidian. The engineers would be working on developing competencies in the areas of radar systems, protection systems, avionic systems, engineering IT and 3D visual simulation, aero-structure and aerospace modelling and simulation.
